Balvina (Vina) Foord
1930 - 2019

Heaven gained an angel when our precious mother, grandmother and dearest forever friend, Vina Foord of Macoun, SK slipped away peacefully on Tuesday, July 30, 2019 at Mainprize Manor & Health Centre, Midale, SK.

Left to cherish her memory are the greatest loves of her life, Lorraine (Greg Griffin) Foord, Linda (Jeff) Foster, George (Chris) Foord, Tom (Diena) Foord and their families as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Vina was predeceased by her parents; husband Ernest and siblings.

Vina was born in Poland on January 2, 1930 to Julia and Adam Milewicz, the youngest of seven children. She made her way to Canada via the United Kingdom where she made life-long friends and created special memories. On January 19, 1952, she married her lifelong partner, Ernie Foord, who sadly predeceased her in 2018. Together they created a wonderful legacy devoting their lives and finding great joy in their family and their farm.

The Funeral Service was held on Tuesday, August 6, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. at the Chapel at Hall Funeral Services, Estevan, SK with Curtis Bessette officiating. Interment took place immediately following the service at Macoun Cemetery with a luncheon following at the Macoun Senior Centre.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in memory of Vina to Mainprize Manor & Healthcare Centre, Box 239, Midale, SK, S0C 1S0.

Yvonne Clark at Hall Funeral Services, Estevan assisted the Foord family.

I have very fond memories of Balvina from my trip with the Fosters to Canada. We talked about life and family while sharing a glass of wine. I also celebrated her gorgeous daughter Linda 's wedding to the handsome Jeff Foster. Balvina was beautiful that day and she was so happy for the couple. I was also blessed to have Balvina name me "her Jenny". With much love, Jenny

With much love, Jenny.

Aunt Vina was a beautiful, loving, industrious lady. I will always remember our family summer trips to visit with Uncle Ernie and Aunt Vina. I enjoyed listening to her stories and her delicious meals. Even though she was busy with farm chores she always found time to fix a meal. I will miss her very much. Hugs and kisses to her family at this difficult time. Love you all, Avis Ann Guldenpfennig Paskey
